Sami Abrahim’s brother, Ali Raza, took to Twitter early on Tuesday to confirm his release. BOL TV also confirmed his release in a news announcement.

“Thankful to God,” he tweeted this morning in Urdu after his release.

Abrahim went missing on Thursday when eight people in four vehicles intercepted his car on his way back home from work in the capital, Islamabad, and took him away, according to his family and BOL TV where Abrahim works.

No one had claimed responsibility for Abrahim’s abduction, but it is widely believed that he was being held by the country’s security agencies, which are notorious for abducting, harassing and torturing journalists.

Abrahim has long publicly opposed the government of Khan’s successor, Premier Shehbaz Sharif.
